Working process

16mm found footage digitalize to SD video, 9’40, 2004

The main idea of this video essay is to reinterpret the process of working with found film footage and the
interpretative possibilities. The footage originates from former socialist Czechoslovakia and the artist here
attempts to depict, by revealing the creative process, how this epoch may be read. Non-traditional instruments
are used here, such as, for instance, randomness. Its impact on the form of the subsequent description of
socialism highlights the thought processes and their certain salience as a template.
